September 17, 2007: Dog adopts piglet



This Ananova story says the dog, named Huihu, adopted the piglet after her five pups were stillborn.

Quote:
She was very depressed for one week, then one night came home with a tiny black piglet following her, says owner, Lao Yi.
...
Lao Yi says that over the course of one month, the piglet has already put on 2kg in weight, drinking only dog milk.
Which brings to mind the old Red Dwarf quote:
Quote:
LISTER: {drinking tea with milk in it} At least we've still got milk.
HOLLY: Oh, we ran out of that yonks ago. Dried and condensed.
LISTER: What's this then?
HOLLY: Dog's milk.
LISTER: {spits out the tea} I was enjoying that!
HOLLY: There's nothing wrong with dog's milk. Full of goodness. Full of vitamins. Full of marrowbone jelly. Plus it lasts longer than any other kind of milk, dog's milk.
LISTER: Why's that?
HOLLY: No bugger'll drink it.
I guess that little bugger will!

Is that a suckling pig? Hmm?



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Sep 17 04:54 PM

Wonder if the piglet's owner is still looking for it?

As a teenager, a bunch of us would be cruising in the car. When we'd see someone walking a dog, we'd yell to them "that's a nice PIG you have there". The person would answer, of course "that's not a pig, it's a dog", to which we would respond "I was TALKING to the DOG"!

Good times....

Baboon adopts chicken at zoo
Mon Sep 17, 2007 8:55am EDT
\
(Reuters) - A lonely baboon in a private Lithuanian zoo has adopted a chicken he saved from certain death last month and the two have formed a fast friendship, the zoo's director said Friday.

The chicken was intended as food for other animals in the zoo, but escaped and was sheltered by Mitis, a six-year-old Hamadryas Baboon, Edvardas Legeckas, who runs the zoo near the port city Klaipeda in western Lithuania, told Reuters.

Mitis has been fed chicken meat before, but this time he fell in love with his food, Legeckas said.

"He plays with the chicken, cleans its feathers, sleeps with it, and takes care as if it was his own baby child," the zoo director said.

"But I am not sure how long this affair would last, because baboon may finally realize this is food."

Baboons, with their distinctive long dog-like muzzles and heavy powerful jaws, are omnivorous, but usually prefer fruit. In the wild, they live in close-knit social groups.

"Obviously this baboon needed someone to communicate with," the director said.

Assuming with a name like Yao Li, the owner is Chinese...

I wonder if a communist dog can raise a capitalist pig?


Holy Shit!!! Seven posts and no one has eaten either of them...yet.



xoxoxoBruce  Monday Sep 17 08:06 PM

We would have if Glatt's link was working.



monster  Monday Sep 17 09:05 PM

So we have a Monkey adopting a Rooster (bringing tears to the eyes),
and a Dog adopting a Pig (making some think of BBQ)....

I can't wait for the one where the Rat adopts the Ox

Look like that one's destined to give someone some wood.

Not the 1st time I've gotten wood over a rat or an ox. ;-)

I'll say it then - this being China, what are the odds which of the two will see the frying pan first?

Dogs don't know it's not bacon!

I love animals, and it's a sweet story...but that is the sorriest looking dog and scariest little pig I've ever seen!



smurfalicious  Tuesday Sep 18 09:25 AM

mmmmmmm..... bacon

What is that little picture there, monster? What do the numbers behind the animal names mean? Based on my last placemat, I'm a dragon (b. 1976) so what does that mean regarding any 'dogs' I meet? Or an animal 'next' to me on the chart?

Not to worry, That skinny dog will be eating a pile of poo soon.

Hand

That pink, burnt, gross hand in the top left is disgusting.

That's what happens to you when you eat dog-milk drinking pigs.

It just shows the cycle of the chinese year symbols. beyond that, I know nothing....


Cicero  Tuesday Sep 18 06:07 PM

You are going to hate the fuck of year of the dog. As I, a dragon, have experienced for myself. Not always true- but well.......they're bastards.


Update: Blue is complimentary. Red is who you won't be able to stand.


Each slice is a space of 2 hrs. which is why there are funky numbers there. Denotes a period of 24 hours.

Ok done.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Sep 18 06:29 PM

Hours? Years, I think.



Leah  Tuesday Sep 18 10:06 PM

That dog looks very under nourished to me. Like most dogs in Asia, it's probably not cared for very well. That pig would be taking any nurishment the dog had left. Poor dog it's not happy at all
